In 1985 Yamaha presented the FZ750, its first real stab at a bike for the growing ‘Sports Bike’ market, pioneered by Kawasaki with the GPz900R just one year earlier.
Thanks to its innovative five valve cylinder head, it was a sprightly performer with 103 horsepower. The FZ750 would be the first motorcycle of what would become the Yamaha “Genesis” concept where the advanced liquid-cooled multi-valve engine and perimeter type steel chassis would be designed to function together as one.

The Yamaha RD350LC (for liquid cooled) was known as the street bike "Giant Killer" in the USA at the time. A 350cc, 2-stroke, twin cylinder engine gave the sort of performance that at the time was only found in pure race bikes with much of the architecture like the company’s TZ racers. The RD350 was able to keep up with many four stroke 750’s of the period with the benefit of lighter weight and more nimble handling. In fact, many of them found their way on to the racetrack including the entertaining carnage of the UK’s 350LC “Pro-Am” series. Good original examples are now priced north of € 10.000, - and if you are after a bike or project just make sure the engine and frame numbers match then enjoy the ride!
